  1. Hi Bicky145,

    I was diagnosed about 5 years ago so I've come a long way since then with what I can and can't tolerate and been on elimination diet after elimination diet but still find myself in denial about a lot of veggies. I just can't accept that such healthy foods can be bad for my system! Haha I mean they are just vegetables right? Although this is what I've found I DO tolerate:

    Almost all greens - spinach, bok choy, rocket, lettuces, silver beet, chard - jury is still deciding on kale though

    Carrots

    Tomatoes

    Cucumber

    Celery

    Avocado

    Green beans

    Turnip

    Swede

    Sweet potato

    Small amounts of garlic

    What I Do NOT

    Eggplant

    Onions

    Leeks

    Broccoli

    Cauliflower

    Green capsicum

    Artichoke

    And then the iffy ones I play with all the time:

    Red capsicum

    Pumpkin

    Mushrooms

    Kale

    Snow peas

    Cooking seems to help my digestion and not eating too many salads in a row.

    Hope that helps. :)

  2. I hear ya sista! This sounds crazy but broccoli actually makes me DEPRESSED! It's like a fog comes over me (within the hour) and it lasts for 24hrs. Full depression. It's so weird. And like when u go to the dentist and they numb your face it wears off in the same way down to the 24th hour. I've tested it many times out of disbelief am proven wrong every time. I avoid broccoli like the plague. I also get instant bloating, I used to live off meat and veg - mostly broccoli and could never understand what was upsetting me until I ate plain organic beef with nothing else on it and steamed broccoli and within 30mins I looked 3 months pregnant. Have since eliminated cauliflower and all the cabbages and am so much better. I have fructose malabsorption though and follow low FODMAPS. So no, you are not alone, and ppl might think I'm crazy but at least I'm not depressed anymore!!
